From Ryan Torrens, Torrens Law Group, PA
Ryan Torrens, a consumer litigation attorney with Torrens Law Group, received a call from a client notifying him that a scam artist had called and told him that he had fallen behind on his mortgage payments. Fortunately, the client was savvy enough to realize that something wasn’t right as he knew he was current on his mortgage payments.
The client then called his mortgage company to only have the representative confirm that he was indeed current on his mortgage payments.
